  1. Municipal hospitals need to be upgraded so that the burden on the tertiary centre like medical colleges will be less.

  2. In my opinion, in Karnataka, the recently started Government Medical Colleges including those in HK region (including Ballari) need more attention now. The Govt Colleges in State Capitals already are getting massive support from State Gov\’t.
